Bookmarks!

Hey ya everybody! Hope you are all well and busy crafting in the new year, I am sure as hell busy crafting my days away! I am working furiously to complete a few orders and complete all my crafty commitments :)

Right now, I am working on bookmarks and I just thought I would share one of the designs today here. It isn't anything new that I have tried. I have already used this design and technique on some of my previous cards. Due to a very tiny timeline given to complete these bookmarks, I thought its better to stick with what I know well.

Here is the front of the bookmarks, I have used my most trusted and loved technique of heat embossing.

And the back of the bookmarks look like this


I wanted to leave a little blank space for the client to sign them personally, so I didn't emboss the whole of the back side. And as you can see I didn't really care about blending the distress inks, I love the effect those strokes and splotches leave.

I am entering this for Flourishes Noon Time Challenge- The year of the dragon as I was inspired by the colors of the inspiration picture.

Hope to see you again soon! Thanks for visiting!

...thats what I told my DH yesterday as it was our engagement anniversary. One year back on 16th of May, we got engaged and I wanted to gift him something special and different and that is when I stumbled upon Monicka Wright's blog and decided to case her wonderful note card.

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 


Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching


Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.

Gond Painting !!

Wishing you all a very happy holi !! Its a colorful spring festival celebrated here in India and I wish that it brings lots of happiness and good things in life for all of you!

And on this colorful occasion, I thought I'd share something different and something close to my heart with you all. I have been crafting right from when I was a little kid and I have always loved to explore different forms of art and craft one of which being the traditional folk art of India.

India has a very rich culture when it comes to art and off late I have been hooked to giving all different forms of folk art a try. After I tried my hands at Madhubani last year which is a folk art from the state of Bihar, I am now hooked to another tribal art form called Gond from the states of Central India (Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh)

I love the way these Gond Paintings look. They are simple and yet so detailed. Its all about filling in the everyday life motifs with dots, dashes and lines.
